business news in context, analysis with attitude

Bloomberg reports that Josh Hix, CEO of meal kit company Plated, is leaving the company. No reason was given for his departure.

Plated was acquired by Albertsons in 2017, which shortly thereafter started selling the meal kits in its stores.

According to the story, “Hix co-founded the meal-delivery service in 2012 and later pitched the idea on the television show ‘Shark Tank.’ Co-founder Nick Taranto left the company in October. At the time of the Albertsons acquisition, Bloomberg reported the deal was valued at about $200 million, though subsequent press has valued it higher.”
